You mean; sometimes a GC has to pre-allocate memory at startup to ensure it has the memory it needs to make forward progress?

Who cares? Resident set size is irrelevant when you're asking OS to commit to too much. E.g. a simple "malloc(SIZE_MAX);" in a loop would be enough to trigger OOM on every 64-bit OS (unless it allows infinite overcommit) with an insignificant resident set.

How does Rust deal with the issue? Searches lead me to believe it was a joke for script kiddies that just crashes, but is "slowly evolving" in an attempt to fix its problem (e.g. https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/46865 ).

Note that (as far as I know), Rust was created to avoid "pointer safety issues" in C (e.g. buffer overflows, etc) and memory management issues that are not related to OOM (e.g. use after free); partly by adopting the stupidity of garbage collection (and then later realizing garbage collection is stupid and abandoning it).

Wait, maybe you're partially right.

If FireFox creates a whole new process for every separate web page and every separate piece of javascript (so that if one process crashes due to OOM it only effects that one piece and not the whole app); then yes, in theory FireFox might be handling OOM properly.

However, in that case it would basically be a malicious/trojan fork bomb designed to trick the OS into committing everything it can, and causing everything to fail. Every time it creates a new process it asks the OS to commit to providing memory for a new copy of the entire program's modifiable pages until the system as a whole starves. Of course it would also make it difficult for one piece (in one process) to ask the rest of the pieces (in other processes) to free up memory used for caches, etc (to avoid failure); so even in the "fork bomb" case it's likely that it's not handling OOM as well as it could.

No; that's just the bare minimum handling possible, which can only be acceptable if there's no better way it could've been handled. For something like GCC (where it can't continue without the memory, doesn't have any cached data it can discard, and can't sacrifice some work to allow other work to succeed) the only other alternative is to wait in the hope other processes release memory; but that can't work in some very common use cases (e.g. "make -j" leading to multiple separate copies of GCC all waiting for each other to finish).

Previously you said the crash logs include crashes from Linux and MacOS (and that crashes on Windows are 20 times as likely).

Note that my current suspicion is that FireFox partly does things that are stupid (expects OS to commit to far too much, causing it to crash more on Windows because Windows is better at defending itself; but also causing crashing on typical Linux and MacOS systems that, for default settings, support some overcommit but do not support "infinite overcommit"); and that FireFox partly doesn't handle OOM properly in places that it can; and that you've been "squirming" (changing your argument from one side to the other) to pretend that it's not suffering from either problem when it's suffering from both.
